This is the coolest story! And the fact that Corey Clement is from Glassboro makes it even more kickass!
Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement didn't have a car back when he was a freshman in high school in Glassboro, New Jersey.
Now that he made it to the NFL, he owns a BMW he had his eye on back in those days.
The same actual BMW that a guidance counselor at his high school drove. It's a funny story.
After Eagles practice on Wednesday, Clement spoke about the bet he made when he was in high school: if he made it to the NFL, his high school guidance counselor would give him her car that he admired so much.
"She just held up on her promise," Clement told reporters. "I spotted the car when I was a freshman in high school. I didn't have a car myself. I found out whose car it was and made the bet with her."
I won't be covering the Eagles and I'm not even in Philly yet, but just heard a cool story about Eagles RB Corey Clement. When he was at Glassboro HS (in NJ), his guidance counselor told him that if he ever made the NFL, she'd give him her BMW. So she did.
